Lazaro Galdiano was a rich editor and a extreme collector of old paintings, gold, silver, swords, furniture. The foundation is in his luxurious palace and shows a very rich collection of Spanish art in a luxurious setting, also some contemporary works.

Not quite the Frick, but an excellent museum nonetheless with a range of wonderful art including Goya and a work by El Bosco, my favorite. Currently there is a must see exhibit by Enrique Marty incorporated into the collection; Marty's work is quite unique and...More

Well, for me, as my tastes are much later than the art on display here. And, very strangely, they have some very modern (I guess) grotesque, ghoulish and graphic death sculptures on each floor, with an occasional death related item in amongst other somewhat routine...More

Very interesting collection for a personal collector. Especially the swords and weapons section. The display was unimaginative and lacked interactivity though.

It is a unique palace. The dome is precious. There are unique pieces on display such as silver tripticts. Its an out of the way museum for tavelers but definately worth the trip to breath and apprciate Spanish culture.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
